Just as a heads up, make sure you ask another tourist to take your photo while here. There are plenty of very engaging people who will offer to take your photo for you....then want a "donation" of a dollar or two for helping. It is relatively small, and there's nothing really else in the park.

The size of the LOVE sculpture was not as big as I envisioned it to be. A park good for pictures - Other than if you are lucky and have enough time, there's music and other art/culture performances at noon.

The Love sculpture was "iconic," but lacked anything else. Lots of homeless people at the fountain "park" and bothering everyone to give money... If passing by stop, but other wise you are not missing anything special.

This park was simply beautiful. On the day we visited, the water was blue. The Philadelphia park association was having a dance in the park, people were listening to music mixed by a DJ. While another parks person was leading everyone. At first they were doing a hustle, then they switched to a step. The main reason we were there... More

LOVE Park (JFK Plaza) is very iconic for Robert Indiana's art installation. The actual installation is smaller than I had envisioned. It's a great spot for taking pictures. The park is very lively and is utilized by all sorts of people; office workers, skate-boarders, tourists, etc. However, the actual park space is not that big. Even though it's a popular... More

Very iconic of Philadelphia. However, the actual statue is surprisingly small. Good for a photo, but other than that, it's nothing spectacular.

The sculpture was a bit of disappointment.I thought it would be bigger. I liked the huge fountain behind the sculpture more. The park itself had lots of people sitting around and in the fountain. Some guys where skateboarding in the park as well.

The vibrancy of the crowds is a big draw for visitors to Love Park. The intriguing LOVE sculpture coupled with the fountain shooting water high into the air ensure a lively surrounding for everyone. There is a delightful variety of people who make up the crowd here so it is not a place to relax. Instead, choose this place to... More
